Happy new year to all! I hope you all can accomplish the goals you set for yourselves this year. I believe that it takes a decision, one that can be backed with deep belief followed by action for your goal to become a reality and that is exactly where I am at and wish for you all to be. We have to keep at it, keep believing in ourselves, and making the changes that are needed to get where we are going. Best wishes to you all. I finally found the reason why I've been gaining weight and feeling so tired. Last week my blood was tested and came back my thyroid is not working properly so today is my third day taking thyroid medication. It felt as though my body was fighting every effort I was making to loose weight and it was odd that I had gained so much weight so quickly to begin with. I wasn't watching what I ate but I was not that horrendous in my eating. So now it's my new beginning, the med is not a quick fix but with a better metabolism and better eating I expect to gain control of my shape. 192 lbs was my high a week ago, I'm down 2lbs to a new start of 190 lbs. Everyone who is struggling to loose weight or is gaining for no reason should get their thyroid checked. A year ago I was 50 lbs lighter! I quit smoking, got on some meds and just let myself go, but it''s time to put the breaks on and take control. I''ve done this before and can do it again. I will make healthy choices, end this love hate relationship with food and get more active. Above all I will commit myself to loving myself at any size.

    Whatever happens, wherever you go, whatever you do,
    Remember this;
    No one can take the Fire out of your soul,
    the Stars from your eyes, the passion in your heart.
    Those are yours forever.

    I hope that one day you buy every pretty dress you´ve ever wanted.
    I hope you wear them and dance barefoot in summer and laugh.
    I hope you smile at all the little things, like flowers, the wind blowing in your face. raindrops,
    the smell of fresh cut grass and the laughter of children.
    I hope you get that tattoo you´ve always wanted. I hope you learn to speak French Fluently.
    I hope you go to Paris and NYC and get lost, and you will be found.
    I hope you never stop singing, even when people tell you that you can´t – in fact,
    especially then, that´s when I hope you´ll sing the loudest.

    I hope you buy a bracelet everywhere you go,
    or something you´ll always remember that place, until your whole arm is filled with them.
    I hope you Love God with all your heart. I hope you stop beating yourself up
    about everything that´s out of your control.
    I hope you have the guts to speak up when something is important to you.
    I hope you step out of your comfort zone.
    I hope you fall insanely in love with someone unexpected.
    I hope you forget about your scars – inside and out –
    and in the middle of all this strange and beautiful world you learn to be happy.

    “Once in a while, amidst all your bad days, you’ll have a good day. A great day even.
    Make sure you remember those days. Keep them safely in your pockets,
    maybe even in a jar on your desk because you need to know that there are and will be
    better days. You need to remember how on those days you felt warm inside,
    like you’ve just drunk a hot cup of tea; like a small fire was ignited inside of you.
    Hold on to that warmth. And never let it go.”

    emoticon emoticon Have a very, very warm Friday, hold on to it & enjoy it! emoticon emoticon

    “To get up when you are down, to fight more intensely when you are struggling;
    to put in the extra effort when you are in sheer pain,
    to comeback when nobody expects you to,
    and to stand tall when everyone is pulling you down are what make a champion”

    You can do this! I am back at again after a while of being off the wagon. :) I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to check in with you. I know you can do it. Remember "Whether we think we can or we think we cannot we are right either way!". Good luck to you. emoticon
